Saturday: Took my little brother to Thorpe park, took him back then went straight to work for a wake night.

Sunday: Took my little sister to Chessington's, took her back then went home to bed after being awake 40 hours with no sleep. (thank god for red bull )

Monday: Took a client to Chessington's.

Now my other little sister is wanting to go as the other two went, I have agreed to take her on friday. Will have to get used to queing though as have been using the disabled entrance the past three days and getting straight on the rides as both my brother and sister have special needs and my client obviously.

Good on you, here - have a medal. I would hate to have to go on all those rides.

Eek! I am shattered enough after doing both Legoland and Chessington in the space of 3 days. I actually think it is probably even more tiring if you don't have to queue as you get to go on more stuff. I decided not to ask for an exit pass for DS (3.10, HFA/hyperlexia), and he was fine although fidgety in the queues, a couple of which were as much as 45 minutes.

Hope the weather clears up for you by Friday.

Why is it the longest queue is always the one that you have to stand in in order to get a stamp saying that you are incapable of standing in queues? [hmmm] By the time you've got that sorted (oh, and your little certificate saying that you can't stand up straight but yes you really are 1m tall or whatever) then you're already wrung out and ready to go home....

And yes, you need at least a medal. Maybe a small statue.

Hate going on the rides Liliac? Not me, I love them and not sure who enjoyed them more, me or the kids. Good that my brothers favourite ride was Nemisis Inferno, same as mine and my sister and client's favourite was Vampire, my favourite too. Definatly agree with getting more worn out as with no queing, we was going from one ride to another and must have walked miles. We didn't even have to wait to get the exit passes which was good. Oh and thanks, a medal would sit nicely next to my award for carer of the month Not that I need any recognition for my work though as I know how much enjoyment the people I take out get from it and then I know that I have done a good job.
